Its reasonable price (650 yen), not to speak of its taste, is one reason that Guchoku's Tonkotsu ramen is getting lots of fans.

Once you try it, you would be a fan for the combination of tonkotsu soup and thin noodle. And once you're finished eating your noodles, don't forget to ask for "kaedama" (additional noodles)! As much as you like!
